Lone Roses Deflowered: The Impact of the Patriarchy on the Girls of Revolutionary Girl Utena
On March 28th, 2023, I presented at the first panel of Rider University’s 41st annual Gender and Sexuality Studies Colloquium, which was called “Gender and Media.” I presented my academic paper: Lone Roses Deflowered: The Impact of the Patriarchy on the Girls of Revolutionary Girl Utena, an essay that delved into analyzing the 1997 anime. I approached my writing through Luce Irigaray’s “Women on the Market” chapter of her book This Sex Which is Not One.
Then, on March 31st, I once again presented my paper, this time at the New Jersey Women’s and Gender Studies Colloquium at Georgian Court University. My paper was awarded the Emerging Scholar award.
